Italian football expert, Marco Di Cosmo (@scioltz) casts his eye over the best bets from tonight's Serie A card.
Sampdoria v Atalanta | Wednesday 27th October 17:30 | BT Sport 2
Cannot see anything different than an away win when Sampdoria host Atalanta at Marassi.
The home side is struggling a lot this season, with just one win in their first home matches. That came against Spezia, while they have conceded 10 goals in their first four games.
Atalanta are not playing on their usual standards yet, but their away scoring form seems already exciting. I don’t expect much from Sampdoria this season, so backing Atalanta to get away with a win is the wisest option to me.
Empoli v Inter | Wednesday 27th October 19:45 | BT Sport 2
This is my banker if you consider Inter’s performances this season. The neroazzurri have always collected less than what they deserved, including the last 1-1 draw against Juve, which came with a penalty just before injury time.
They play very exciting football and the opponents’ defence has proved to be far from reliable with an average of 2 goals conceded per game.
Back Inter to get back to win with at least 3 goals in the game.
Lazio v Fiorentina | Wednesday 27th October 19:45 | BT Sport 1
Lazio have been a constant bet when backing goals this season, and they have rarely disappointed.
They should not let us down also when meeting a fierce Fiorentina attacking side, with the likes of Dusan Vlahovic to seriously menace such a dodgy defence.
Simply backing more than 2 goals should be a very safe option.
